Feb 2009 Richard Jenkins + Donkey
Will it get indexed?
Yes – Google never ceases to amaze. 20 minutes after creation … 2nd after Digg in organic search.
Will it get traffic?
Yes – 19 views faster then anything else on this blog in … 20 minutes.
Will it get people engaged?
Nope – doubtfully here. First movers win and this NYU Lawyer blogger was up first. Put up when it showed in the US and number 2 on Google (still a day later, until I put up mine, apologies) and 22 comments and counting. Including mine which proves I didn’t come up with the idea. And others after which proves the idea isn’t dead. Amazing.
What am I talking about?
Jon Stewart talked about googling “Richard Jenkins + Donkey” on his show this evening. And of course I did. As did others. But then again I live in the UK so I was a day late. And I DVR’d it so I was 10 minutes behind the UK live broadcast. But when I saw the lawyer’s blog I couldn’t resist the test. And it is still fun.
What does it prove?
Nothing drives traffic like good tv.
And sorry I couldn’t come up with a more rewarding set of images.
Check out Six Feet Under – great show if you haven’t seen it.
